What are the odds of winning at poker if you don't know the odds in poker? Practical Poker Math provides a complete and easy-to-understand explanation of the basic odds, probabilities and expectations in Hold'Em and Omaha. All the formulations are completely open and are demonstrated via easy-to-follow, colour-coded calculations. Pat Dittmar has aimed this book at beginning through semi-pro players who want to improve their results and who know that there is not much chance of improvement without a fundamental understanding of poker odds, probabilities, and expectations. Pat Dittmar is head of trading and development at TradePointTechnologies.com, an organization that develops and deploys state-of-the-art proprietary trading technologies. Pat feels that successful poker players possess the skills required to play in the one true fast action, around the world, around the clock "Big Game" - the world financials markets, and TradePointTechnologies recruits its traders exclusively from the poker world.
